    "Liberating, and extremely helpful"

    I bought this book after a huge row with my wife. I wish I'd bought it earlier. It would have saved me a lot of trouble. This book is practical, challenging, and extremely helpful. It may be short, but it contains essential nuggets of truth that will turn your life the right way up.

    "Friendship"

    I have listened to "Making Marriage Work" several times during my drives to and from work. It's short and relatable. It has helped me to feel hopeful about my relationship when I had been letting myself get bogged down with disappointment and dispair. Working on positive sentiment overload and avoiding the "Four Horsemen of the Apocolypse" have been invaluable tools for me.

    "Jam-packed with a lifetime of gems"

    I'll keep it short. This guy is the real deal. You can tell he has worked in this industry for decades. The whole thing is packed full of little pearls of wisdom... all based off of REAL research on REAL people. I felt like I was listening to a "cheat sheet" of answers to marriage's major issues. It's short and that's good because he moves quickly and it never drags. It's one powerful point after another. Each point he makes is dead-on correct too!

    "For every married couple"

    This is a short talk filled with information critical to married people, (actually all relationships). If you care about a relationship, avoid the 4 Horsemen Gottman speaks about. Listen to this talk, it's short, informative and critical.

    yes

    "Best 46 minutes you will ever spend"

    Highly recommended. Clear, concise and a perfect summary of his longer works. It covers what makes relationships work and what ensures they do not succeed. Good introduction to the rest of Gottman's work. Packed with his key ideas in a nutshell. It helps to hear the author himself give this talk. Seems like a nice bloke. I have all his works and have studied his research.
